The SymbNET Interim Meeting brought together the five partners of the consortium in a two-day event in Oeiras, Portugal.
The scientific meeting, hosted by the Coordinator Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (FCG-IGC), was a great success and allowed the partners to get together in person for the first time. Group Leaders, Facility heads, Postdocs and Students shared their latest findings in Host-microbe Symbiosis, Genomics and Metabolomics in a series of oral and poster presentations. The best poster was awarded to Ana Figueiredo from the Inflammation Lab (FCG-IGC) with her work on “The role of Biliverdin reductase A in malaria”. During the meeting, there was also time for debating the “Future challenges in host-microbe symbiosis”, discuss ongoing and future collaborations, and countless networking opportunities.
The event held a Management Meeting as well, where the Work Package Leaders, Task leaders and Contributors, the Steering Board and the Advisory Board members discussed the progression of the project and future plans.
We are looking forward to the next meeting!More info
